ULD MANAGEMENT OUTSOURCING
-White Paper from CHEP AEROSPACE SOLUTIONS
   


Running a fleet of ULDs is often mission-critical, with the risk of unforeseen costs never far away. CHEP Aerospace Solutions’ asset management, supply and repair services are designed to enable airlines to focus on their core business of flying passengers and cargo whilst delivering significant cost savings across six key areas.

1. CAPEX and OPEX – capital and operating costs tied up in ULD operations
2. Maintenance and repair – uncertainty in costs and hassle in managing ongoing maintenance of ULD fleets to ensure airworthiness
3. Lost ULDs and pallet nets – administration effort in tracking missing assets and cost of replacements
4. Peaks and imbalances – costs for the variation in ULD demands at each network station
5. Fluctuating fuel price – traditional heavy ULDs generate excessive fuel-burn and CO2 impact
6. Opportunity cost – foregone revenue of lost cargo sales due to ULD shortages

Using Lean Six Sigma processes, CHEP works closely with its aviation customers to provide them with insight into total cost of ownership (TCO) of their ULD and galley cart fleets. CHEP identifies and analyses airlines’ pain points so that it can provide them with improvement recommendations including a tailor-made outsourcing proposal that ensures the supply of the right ULDs in an airworthy condition, in the right place and at the right time, every time.
